Thanks Grant. Yes, I have a Bentley, best investment I ever made. However 
when Bentley shows a tool, that I don't have, then I worry.
The "other" things are pretty easy, as I did that not too long ago when I 
replaced bushings and tie-rod ends and brake/rotors. Is it a "must" to 
replace the axel bolt with a new one? Not a problem if it is.

Again thanks to all who have helped me in the past. This "little" forum is 
fantastic, like friends in far away places.

I think you need a how-to.  You remove the axel bolt and it pulls out 
easily. but often, model dependent, other things must be dis-assembled 

Do you have bentley?  Else search for step by step.
